 Dogs On Leads

Dog lead
Keep your four legged friend and others around you safe.

When in a public place or park such as Garvey Park and Tomato Lake, your dog must be kept on a leash and under control at all times.

With more than 20 dog exercise areas in the City of Belmont, there are plenty of places for your pet to explore.

Remember – fines apply to those found with dogs off leash in public places. The responsibilities and laws relating to dog ownership can be found here.
